    This restaurant is a hidden gem. The staff are wonderfully thoughtful and helpful, food is next level and the wine list is extensive. Loved it and will be back

    Delicious food and great wine selection. I had the special wavy beef and it didn’t disappoint! But we were never brought the side dish we ordered and for a table of two with a small order I was surprised that this had been forgotten. Would still go back though, lovely place for a work lunch with clients or partners.

    Unfortunately this time Bambini did not get it right. Service was slow and food was just ok. It’s a shame - it’s usually amazing. Maybe next time ...

    We loved the elegant atmosphere and our table position. We enjoyed the service and food however we found the main courses were a bit over cooked! We mentioned this to our waitress and she said she would let the chef know otherwise it was a great night!

    Great restaurant- food always good. Service excellent as well. Just didn’t have the ambience right this time around with music too loud which then had everyone competing to talk over it and each other.

    Love the menu size. Big enough to choose, small enough to not confuse. Excellent quality, great interaction with staff

    Haven’t been back to Bambini’s since 2015 and that’s been a huge mistake. Wonderful meal, great wine available and enjoyed. Service professional with just the right degree of charm and cheer. Great evening all the way around. We will certainly be back inside 5 years, more likely within 5weeks.

    I have been using Bambini for 20 years and it is always excellent. Food and service great. Seating is always tight but its a small cosey space. Its a great place.

    Food was fabulous - great flavours and very fresh. One waitress was excellent and very attentive. Blond haired lady - excellent. The waitress who greeted me was not so great. I had a table for two - she sat me on a table with one chair. I waited for a while and had to go and get an extra chair (would have been embarrassing if my guest arrived with no seat for her). She offered no drinks. Luckily the lovely waitress noticed and was all over it.

    Very nice dinner with superb cheese souffle and a very satisfying tagliatelle with veal. Very lovely and efficient server from France.

    The food was really nice and cocktail drinks are great. The service was ok but could be more attentive. The restaurant is good for personal catchups.

    Bambini Trust always delivers exceptionally good food at a very reasonable price making the food excellent value for money. The wine list is extensive and expensive. Service quality varies a lot - if you get a good crew, service is professional but at other times (like last night) it was pretty poor apart from the sommlier who was knowledgeable and professional. Perhaps they were a bit busy but attention to detail was sloppy - if you're going to have linen table clothes then either cover them with paper or iron them properly - we had neither. Ditto, if you serve butter with the excellent bread, then a knife to spread it would be useful - steak knifes to spread butter? Don't think so. This is an expensive restaurant with great food but the kitchen is too often let down by the front of house

About the restaurant

A temple of European taste and charm

If you’re after old-world European charm and a wine list filled with vin du pays, then Bambini is for you. It’s a favourite of the corporate crowd and the small food menu is somewhat sidelined in favour of drinks, but there’s an elegance to this place that will make you feel like a London banker (or trophy girlfriend) circa 1950.

Best dish: Bambini Spaghettini – Saute of Yamba Prawns with Chilli & Garlic
